HINTON ROWAN HELPER
American writer and critic of slavery
(1829 - 1909)

Slavery destroys, or vitiates, or pollutes, whatever it touches. No interest of society escapes the influence of its clinging curse. It makes Southern religion a stench in the nostrils of Christendom; it makes Southern politics a libel upon all the principles of republicanism; it makes Southern literature a travesty upon the honorable profession of letters.
      - [Slavery]

Slavery is the parent of ignorance, and ignorance begets a whole brood of follies and vices; and every one of these is inevitably hostile to literary culture.
      - [Slavery]

Slavery tolerates no freedom of the press, no freedom of speech, no freedom of opinion.
      - [Slavery]
